Here we are it’s Sunday again.
One time more, one time less until Jesus comes.
Whilst we are in Worthing we thought we’d take the chance to try somewhere different.
Much to my surprise I found there’s a youthful church right here in Goring.
We are just 5 minutes walk away, and made it to the 10:30 service which is held in nearby Chatsworth Catholic School.
Top marks to the guy in the car park who gave us a cheery welcome, but nobody inside hooked up with us as we took our seats.
One of the leaders asked folk to talk to their neighbours, but we were blanked by two people and only got a few words out of a single lady behind us.
The main speaker spoke from Luke 18: 9-14, and was first class. I had a quiet inward laugh as she spoke about how the Pharisee seemed to think he was doing God a favour by praying.
Early in the service the simplistic worship songs seemed just like that, we were doing God a favour by choosing to follow him!
Would we go again?
Possibly, but with the appeals for extra help setting up and putting out equipment I felt like I’d be transported back to Chudleigh Baptist!
If something’s becoming a burden perhaps it’s time to change the way we “do church”?
